Operational Excellence

Improve your warehouse through operational excellence!


How can you increase the efficiency of your warehouse? How do you involve your employees in the change processes? How do you apply lean warehousing? These and other questions are addressed in the area of Operational Excellence. But what is Operational Excellence (OpEx)? OpEx bundles proven principles and practices into an overall strategy. Coordinated strategies and concepts as well as the continuous improvement of processes and procedures form the basis for a successful company. OpEx also focuses on people in order to meet current and future requirements.

In order to develop sustainable strategies and flexible solutions for intralogistics, Fraunhofer IML advises and supports you in the individual development and implementation of optimization processes within the warehouse.

Through coordinated strategies, the ambition for process efficiency, the use of existing employee potential as well as the application of lean warehousing, we accompany you in understanding value creation as well as in identifying and eliminating waste in the warehouse on a sustainable long-term basis. Together we design the change process for the successful implementation of new strategies.
